Hello Dolly Bar

Valentines Day is just around the corner and that means it is time for everything sweet and these Hello Dolly Bars are the perfect treat.  They are loaded with tons of flavor with a little something for everyone.

Brining back my Childhood 

Growing up my mom would make these bars ALL THE TIME.  These were her go to dessert.  She would bring them to friends homes for get togethers, they were on every holiday dessert table and all our church pot lucks.  

As a kid I hated coconut but I LOVED these bars… there is just something so special about them, especially when my momma made them.

Options, Options and more Options

The best things about these bars are all the options you have.  My mom would always use Nilla wafers as the crust, but when I started making them I changed it up to graham cracker crumbs, either are good.  

My mom would also always use milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips but for me I am all about the dark chocolate chunks, I love the bitterness it brings and the larger bites of chocolate you get.  You can also switch up the white chocolate with more dark chocolate or use peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch chips.

For the nuts I have used walnuts or pecans, either are AMAZING, but pecans are my favorite.  I am tell you the options are endless.

You need these in your life… NOW
